Mama June, 37, who gained fame for being the mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, will be the focus of a new WE tv reality series.
MAMA JUNE DEBUTS MASSIVE WEIGHT LOSS IN NEW WE TV SHOW
June’s kids Thompson and Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon spoke about their mom’s progress. “She’s been doing very good,” Thompson, 11, told E! News. June previously underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2015 following her split from her children’s father Frank “Sugar Bear” Thompson. She also had excess skin surgically removed.
Alana and Lauryn were hesitant to reveal exactly what their mother looks like these days, and insisted fans wait for her debut on Mam June: From Not to Hot.
